High degree of consistency in number, layout and dimensions of staves inidcates that MS compiled as single project, despite use of several different rastra (cf Rees 1995, 200). Double vertical-line borders in red ink on each page. It was originally copied by two scribes, who had also copied P-Cug MM 8. One of these was the composer Pedro de Cristo, who was the first scribe to work on this manuscript. He originally left gaps between pieces and groups of pieces which were later filled by other scribes (cf Rees 1995, 199-200). Modern pencil foliation, 1-131.
